Taylor made up at fairytale return to Millwall

22 March 2016

Winger Chris is enjoying life with The Lions again

As second debuts go, they don't come much better than Chris Taylor's for Millwall against Sheffield United.

Less than 48 hours after joining The Lions on loan from Blackburn Rovers until the end of the season, winger Chris was thrown straight into action for Saturday's Den clash with a Blades side still harbouring hopes of making a push for the Play-Offs.

With many fans still settling into their seats at The Den, Steve Morison broke down the left, whipped over an inviting ball and Taylor smashed home from 12 yards - marking his debut with the winning goal with just one minute and 35 seconds on the clock.

"I dreamt about scoring the night before and luckily it came true," said Chris. "Most important of all though, we got the three points.

"At this stage of the season it's just about getting the points on the board and making sure that we are in the top six and hopefully the top two."

Chris has had no difficulty in settling into life with The Lions, with a number of familiar faces still here from his previous stint in SE16 during the 2012/13 season.

"Some of the lads I knew from last time so I have settled in really well," he added, "That is a big compliment to the management and the lads too. There are only nine games left and that doesn't leave a lot of time, so it really helps to be settled in so quickly. The way they have been with me is fantastic."

Those remaining nine games Chris mentions start this Saturday when Millwall travel to face a Bradford City side currently only kept out of the sixth Play-Off spot on goal difference.

Just two days after Bradford, The Lions must try to stop the Burton Albion promotion bandwagon in its tracks when they host Nigel Clough's top of the table side in a televised match at The Den on Easter Monday.

"When I signed I knew the next three fixtures were very big games," added Chris. "Every match is massive at this stage of the season though.

"It's a big week for us - one slip up and you could find yourself out of the picture. We have to keep going, keep ticking off the games and hopefully be in the shake up at the end of it."
